Idaho in Ratdog
Ratdog during the jazz-horn/electronica-Denson period, a bit looser than the straight-ahead-rock-n-roll of Ratdog's other assemblages. However, in typical fashion, Bob broke out the acoustic for "KC Moan" right after an extended jazzy-electronic "Bird Song" jam.
Ratdog played with Denson's Tiny Universe and Rusted Root in the So Many Roads Festivals. Ratdog opens with a great jam into Jack Straw and Bird Song, very jazzy with the horns and structure.
Sound quality is decent, problems coming from the hig-end drums (cymbals) tracking as fuzz, hiss and distortion.
Granted, a concoction of hops and hrooms were buzzing 'round my head like flies, so I dont remember the Touch of Grey closer, but I did have the typical disillusioned synchronistic pseudo-connection with the entertainment onstage when I yelled "Brokedown Palace" several times and lo and behold, they closed with it. Of course, no one sitting beyond five-feet of me could hear it, let alone anyone onstage, and as it turns out they closed with Brokedown commonly that summer.
